2015 BC Soccer has received candidate submissions from the following candidates for the Board of Directors

Posted on May 8th, 2015 by BC Soccer

Dear BC Soccer Members,

The following incumbent(s) have indicated they will be seeking election/re-election at the 2015 BC Soccer Annual General Meeting:

1st VP        Kjeld Brodsgaard
VP Adult    Rob Brown
Director     Don Moslin
Director    Shannon Pederson
Director    John Reed
Director    Michael Bradley
Director    Ron Brar
Director    Tej Cheema
Director    Brinder Lally

There is anticipated to be seven (7) positions open for election including First Vice President, the Vice President Adult, and five (5) directors shall be elected for 2 year director terms.  
                                                                                                                      
The elections process will commence with that of the 1st Vice President and proceed through the Executive to that of Directors.  While the normal term of office is two years, the outcome of some elections may dictate a one-year term of office.  Candidates who are not successful in their challenge for a specific position may challenge for another position as it becomes open for election.

Consistent with past practice, an individual may be nominated directly from the floor at the Annual General Meeting which is to be held on Saturday, June 13, 2015, at the Delta Burnaby Hotel and Conference Centre, 4331 Dominion Street, Burnaby, BC. While this may be done, the membership has indicated a strong preference for candidates to declare their interest well in advance of the AGM. 

Following this process allows the membership to give greater consideration to each candidate.
As you know, there are a variety of positions on the BC Soccer Board of Directors up for election at the 2015 AGM.  BC Soccer has compiled the following candidates' applications that have been received to date for you to compare the various candidates' qualifications, experience and visions for BC Soccer.  As a democratic organization, we believe that it is important for you, the membership, to be able to exercise an informed vote.  The candidates' information is provided to you to further that goal.  Please take the time to review the candidates' information, distribute it and discuss it as necessary within your networks to best inform your vote.  If you wish to contact candidates in advance of the AGM, you are of course welcome to do so.  

Important note: in addition to the All-Candidates Meeting that will take place as part of the AGM, BC Soccer will be hosting an All-Candidates at the BC Soccer office on May 26, 2015 at 6:30pm where you can pose further questions to the candidates.

For any questions on the election process or the candidates, please contact the;
